Food Truck Profile: Bacon Bacon
The Bacon Bacon Truck is a roving food truck that can also be looked at as a temple of bacon delivering sandwiches and bouquets (a paper cone filled with perfectly fried strips) of bacon to the streets of San Francisco.
Jim Angelus apparently thought that bacon was lacking in the San Fran food-truck scene. So he came up with the idea of a Bacon Bacon food truck at a time when he was unemployed. “I was sick of the long hours of running someone else restaurant and quickly realizing that I wasn’t home to see my little girl grow up.”
He brings some of his 15+ yrs of restaurant experience to the front of the truck so customers aren’t ordering into a window two feet too high… but talking to a person that loves what they are doing. According to the website, the truck’s concept is to be “Where Bacon is not always the star– but plays an important role, co-star, character, actor or director.”
On March 1st of 2011, Angelus began his plunge into the mobile food industry and got the truck onto the streets on July 5th. Since then this mobile pork business has expanded to 9 employees.
When asked about his business and its future, Angelus has stated, “Everyday I’m amazed by the response we get. Whether it’s in person, via social media, the press or a foodie blog. I know we are putting out a great product and I want to share what we are offering with more of you. I want to be able to cater more parties, expand service hours, and do more large events outside San Francisco”.
You can order from the regularly changing menu of a half-dozen sandwiches and fries. Their Triple B Taco has received mention from foxnews.com, and why wouldn’t it? This taco combines pork butt, pork belly, bacon, Momma Lil’s peppers, and goat cheese.
And even if you’re just looking for dessert, the Bacon Bacon truck offers chocolate-covered bacon strip.
Bacon Bacon opened up a brick and mortar in Cole Valley where they slang to-go items and use as a commissary kitchen for the food truck. The shop is open for casual breakfast and will have lunch hours available in the near future.
The Bacon Bacon food truck can be found in San Francisco and its surrounding neighborhoods throughout the week.

What their fans have said:
After me and the boyfran-man were diddling around SF’s City Hall, we decided to indulge in a little fattery and there’s no better form than in the BACON BACON truck! I like to imagine just standing within a 5 foot perimeter of the food truck would already be greeting my arteries with a little hello. Bonnie X. – San Diego, CA
